"CRYSTAL IS A FASCINATING AND SURPRISING MATERIAL! WHEN CUT, SCULPTED, AND LIT BY THE TALENTED HANDS OF THE BACCARAT ARTISANS, IT REVEALS ALL ITS SECRETS. IT IS BY EXPLORING THE MATERIAL'S INFINITE POSSIBILITIES THAT THE MAGIC HAPPENS."
His "Encounter" with Baccarat took place in 2009 with a masterful set of candy boxes. Piña Passion, Blackberry Freeze, BonBon Treasure, his Crystal Candy Set pays a breathtaking tribute to Baccarat's craftsmanship. With the protagonists of his Zoo, a family of animals in crystal and Lladro porcelain, Jaime Hayon once again tells a story full of humor and joy. In 2021, the designer returned with Faunacrystopolis, an exceptional collection of decorative objects, tableware and lights.
A true exercise in style, his incredible tribe of animals offers a new vision of animal sculpture in perfect balance between past and future, heritage and modernity.
